Tutors can choose from existing challenges created by experienced ASDAN practitioners, or write and submit their own.
Challenges are designed to structure learning and demonstrate achievement in a range of curriculum areas. Learners work through their chosen challenges and collect evidence of their achievements. Challenges are internally moderated; learner evidence can be printed or kept electronically.
New centres are required to undertake an initial quality check with ASDAN prior to requesting certification for the first time.
Centres can claim certification from ASDAN to reward learners' achievements. There is also the option of downloading a free statement of achievement after each completed challenge to reward small steps of progress.
In order to download and start work on your chosen challenges, you must purchase registrations for your learners. Learner registration costs £17.30 per person.
This registration lasts for 12 months, during which time the learner can complete as many challenges as required. The price includes one certification opportunity, along with the option to download statements of achievement along the way.
There is also an opportunity to purchase a registration extension for £10 per learner. Each learner will therefore have a subsequent year of registration. This will mean that all challenges roll over to the subsequent year and certification is also deferred.
For centres new to ASDAN, your first step is to complete the Centre Registration Form. Current ASDAN centres need to ensure that Lifeskills Challenge is added to their centre's registration.
Following registration, you will be able to log in to the Lifeskills Challenge website. You will manage your candidates, browse and download challenges, submit challenges for approval and request certification from here.
Centres interested in writing and submitting their own challenges should contact their ASDAN regional relationship manager for advice.
